Scaling Networks

    The CCNA 3 - Scaling Networks course prepares students for the following:

    • Configure, verify and troubleshoot VLANs spanning multiple switches: VTP, DTP and EtherChannel
    • Configure, verify and troubleshoot STP protocols: Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), Per VLAN Spanning Tree Plus Protocol (PVST+) and Rapid Per VLAN Spanning Tree Plus Protocol (RPVST+)
    • Understand, configure, and troubleshoot first hop redundancy protocols (HSRP)
    • Understand and describe dynamic routing protocols, distance vector routing protocols, and link-state routing protocols
    • Configure, verify and troubleshoot routers in a complex routed IPv4 or IPv6 network using single-area OSPF, multi-area OSPF, and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)

    Anyone who desires a practical and technical introduction to the field of networking. Job roles include headend technicians, network operations centre (NOC) staff, network engineers, network administrators, and network help-desk staff.
